Fourth of July Cuteness

Our 4th of July weekend started out with Kyle and I going out for dinner at Mongolian BBQ in Grand Rapids for my 24th birthday! We did a little shopping at BuyBuy Baby and Marshalls and then stopped at Cold Stone for some ice cream! Then on Saturday morning we packed up to head to the cottage for the weekend while Makenna took a morning nap. Wow, 5 month olds need a lot of stuff! We spent the day in the sun and at night Kyle and my brother-in-law Robb headed  to Berlin with some friends from church! It was perfect weather! 
We made our own pizzas on the grill on Sunday night and my mom's sisters and their husbands came for a pontoon boat ride! Monday morning we went out for breakfast at Blue Goose, spent the day outside and around 4:00 we headed home and had steaks on the grill and layed low after a busy weekend!
Thankfully, the kids slept great!
 It was such a great weekend!
